This Sunday, an estimated 25,000 runners will come through WeHo, mostly along the Sunset Strip, as part of the Los Angeles Marathon.

Runners will first arrive at Sunset Boulevard coming up from Havenhurst Drive, before traveling through the Strip. On Sunset, they’ll have a view of many of our city’s most iconic landmarks, such as music venues the Roxy, Whisky a Go Go and Viper Room, and the Sunset Tower.

Runners will then take a left at San Vicente Boulevard before exiting the city along Santa Monca Boulevard. Miles 13 through 15 of the 26.2-mile course will occur in town.

The marathon begins at Dodger Stadium and finishes at Ocean Avenue in Santa Monica.
